All this summer, my honorary granddaughter, Maelynn, is spending Tuesdays with us! We are spending lots of time playing with bubbles and the water table, visiting the splash pad and enjoying outside activities! I also promised her I would try to sew her a dress every week!

This week’s sew was a combination of a new pattern and an oldie but goodie!
I tried a new pattern for the top. This is the Warren Ave. Peplum pattern by Rain City Pattern Company. I sewed the size 7 for Maelynn as she is very tall and thin! She probably could have easily worn the size 6, but I also wanted to make sure it would fit through the fall.
The Warren Ave. Peplum pattern can be made as a crop top, shirt or peplum. It has both long and short sleeves or can even be made sleeveless.
This was my first time sewing a Rain City Pattern Company pattern and I was really happy with it! It was very easy to make. The undershirt serves as a lining for the crop top so no facings are required. I would say the fit is spot on for the size, also.
The capri leggings are the Bonny Leggings by Made For Mermaids. I have been making these for Maelynn for a couple of years now! I cut out a smaller size but add the length of a larger size since she is so thin. They have shorts, capri and long length and the pattern is free! The Bonny Leggings is a really easy sew even for beginners.
The soft blue solid heathered cotton lycra was from Wanderlust. This is a thinner cotton lycra and perfect for summer as it’s nice and cool even for a layered outfit like this one.
The Mickey fabric has been in my stash for quite a while and I sadly cannot remember where it was from.
Maelynn loved the twirl factor of this peplum so we’ll be making more!
Maelynn will be the best dressed child in school! The outfit is so cute and looks so easy to move in. Have loads of fun all summer!
One more Tuesday and then she heads back to school!
